In analogy with linear motion, when the angular acceleration,
, is constant, we have:


=

t
 (8) 


=

t + t^{ 2}

=

2(  ).

In the above equations, and are the angular
position
and angular velocity of the rigid body at t = 0 . These can be
compared to the analogous formulae for linear motion, namely
Eqs.(2.5)(2.7).
